An open kitchen welcomes you. Friendly staff and chef. You can go for a set menu or eat a la carte. Some top dishes for vegetarians. A nice refreshing place to visit.

4.5 stars. This is a must-visit place with an impressive menu. The atmosphere is casual and the food and wine are awesome. Get the wine pairing with the extended menu. The vegetable dishes were flavorful and creative and were the highlight of dinner.
